How to se­lect the best di­men­sions

While print­ing im­ages is some­thing many pho­tog­ra­phers seem to do less in the modern age of so­cial me­dia, it is still a vi­tal as­pect of the pro­fes­sional’s day-to-day work process. The ac­tual size of the print and how this should be se­lected is some­what of a ne­glected topic. There is more to this choice than sim­ply how big you would like an im­age to be dis­played – the ra­tio of the height and length val­ues can di­rectly in­flu­ence the com­po­si­tion and im­pact of the con­tent it­self. Fur­ther­more, the cam­era type and na­tive as­pect ra­tio need to be con­sid­ered. There is a great va­ri­ety of sen­sor shapes and sizes to­day, pro­duc­ing more vari­able frame as­pects than dur­ing the days of film, mean­ing care must be taken to en­sure max­i­mum com­pat­i­bil­ity be­tween de­fault out­put di­men­sions and pa­per for­mat.
